Badfish River Surfer Appreciation Thread

Thank you Bad fish for making my life more fun, healthy, shredding and happy. It is because of you 140 cfs is fun, and skatey, and surfey. I have had many great sessions around the west this year. This single board has helped turn a bummer summer into a shredding summer.

But this thread is not about that. This is about losing a River Surfer off the rack onto the highway. It took some big hits but was limited to epoxy damage mainly. I took it home, sanded it down, threw some epoxy on it and it was good to go the next afternoon. I just put a huge crack into an ocean SUP the other day by dropping it from2 feet. The River Surfer went from rooftop to pavement at speed and had less damage.

I am impressed on the quality of build of this board, another example of how river people understand the relationship between board and river use and abuse.

Pics below, because I still have no idea why an image has a URL.

Post your River Surfer Pics if you got 'em.

Agreed.

the River Surfer saw a lot of days on the water here in BV. Staircase is pretty good at 300 and buttery smooth at 500+. Lots of fun after work sessions....will be even better at 3000 next year.
